What if we told you flossing could help you achieve a whiter smile? It’s actually true! Maintaining your flossing routine will help keep the plaque that sits between your teeth away, which – if left alone, will turn into a hard yellow substance known as tartar, giving your teeth an overall yellow appearance.

Studies even show that a white smile can take as much as 10 years off of your appearance, so flossing could even be considered part of an oral “anti-aging” routine.

Whether it’s good health, a whiter smile, optimal breath, or just best general oral hygiene practices – flossing truly is an important part of your dental care routine. And at DentistsRUs, our dental professionals across the Lower Mainland want to help keep you smiling in the healthiest, whitest, straightest ways possible, giving you a smile you will be proud of and have other’s asking you how you keep your grin so healthy and white!

Use Mouthwash After Your Floss
Antimicrobial mouthwash is a great product to add to your oral care routine. It aids in destroying the bacteria that forms plaque, acting as a secondary cleaner after you have flossed between your teeth, so your mouthwash can actually get through the tight spaces between your teeth.

Brush After You Floss
Flossing before you brush can actually help make brushing more effective, as the fluoride in toothpaste is able to get into the tight spaces between your teeth and further assist you with healthy teeth and gums.

So if you have been tackling a yellowing smile – don’t forget to floss! Then stop by and see any of our dental professional for your next dental checkup and cleaning so we can help keep you healthy and smiling with an optimally white smile!
